Fire Drill!


We just had a false fire alarm go off in the office. It probably wasn't smart of everyone to crowd into the back parking lot where the only escape from a raging inferno would be to jump down a 20 foot wall. One of my coworkers summed up the experience perfectly by referencing the beginning of a classic Simpsons episode. The Simpsons is great at pointing out how silly people can be in real life.

7 days, 6 hours to Halo 3



Dear Mr. Gates,

My 3rd Xbox 360 just died. Damn you! Why? Why!? Why!?! Halo 3 comes out next week, but now I'll have to wait another 2 to 3 weeks before I can play it :(...........

Bill, I loath you. How do you manage to make people want your products, despite the fact they almost never work properly?

First 360 = Died February 2006 ~ 2 months after purchase
Second 360 = Died November 2006 ~ 8 months after replacement
Third 360 = Died September 2007 ~ 9 months after replacement

Please hurry and send me my fourth 360, jerkface!

Sincerely,

Philip Cohen
